Description

Not all good things come to those who wait. One final night. One last chance. Five people queue for a ticket to the hottest show in town. All they must do is simply wait in line. But what in life is ever simple? Who will triumph, who will fail, and who will walk away with… The Last Return? A new play by acclaimed playwright Sonya Kelly (How to Keep an Alien, The Wheelchair on My Face), The Last Return is a thrilling comedy about conflict, peace and the pursuit of territory at any cost.

I'm in a minority of one, but I hated this. It's sub-par Dario Fo absurdist comedy. It's all deeply obvious; even the tacked on happy ending. I found it irritating and tedious.

This was excellent. What a wonderful end to our day. The actors performed this so well. It was funny and dark at the same time. Go see it you will not be disappointed

As expected from the Travers, what you see is not what you expect in the most positive way. Good show, great acting! There was no need to get grotesque. Strong political message. 3.5/5

Enjoyed the show. Well-acted. The dialogue was particularly clear and I could hear every word without straining.

A highly pointed and brilliantly witty new play done full justice by the cast. ****
